016. Clover Bakery (San Jose, CA)

Hey there!

The other day Annie posted her Mushi Pan baking adventures. I am here to tell you… I neither cook, nor bake. I buy other people’s cooking and baking… because they are better at it than me. 🙂 So here are my cooking adventures… going to the local bakery and buying baked goods. Yummy baked goods as a matter of fact! I have been meaning to do a post on Clover Bakery for awhile now. Every time I go… I rush home, sit at my dining table and eat my goodies right out of the bag! I usually only have crumbs left when I remember to take pictures. 🙂

015. Mushi-pan: A Super-Easy Japanese Snack!

While I was teaching in Japan, one of my favorite things to do was to participate in the home economics class when they were cooking, and one of my favorite lessons to take part in was about mushi-pan.

What is mushi-pan, you ask?  It’s a Japanese egg-based steamed bun that uses baking powder to rise instead of yeast.  It’s usually lightly sweetened, and can be found in any convenience store in Japan, usually with raisins, red beans, or chocolate chips dotting them for more flavor, since the bread itself is so mild.

013. Sanrio X Yogurtland Summer 2012


If you don’t know who I’m referring to, please check out your local Yogurtland starting from TODAY!

Hello Kitty is back at Yogurtland and she brought some familiar pals – Badtz Maru, Little Twin Stars and TuxedoSam. I nearly freaked out when I saw the shadow sticker hanging outside my Yogurtland the other day. It had a big JULY 10th printed on it, and I immediately entered the date into my calendar. Last summer, I went a little crazy and bought the entire collection minus the T-Shirt  and the tote bag. The tote bag wasn’t available at my Yogurtland, but if it were I probably would have purchased it too! This summer I made it easy for myself. I bought the entire collection in one go. 🙂 If you know me (Kelli), you know that I am an avid Hello Kitty collector. Some people collect stamps, some people collect cars, and some people collect empty liquor bottles. I just happen to collect an adorable white cat who wears a red bow.

009. Kalbi Burgers a la Annie

So, last year I asked my mom for her kalbi recipe.  I’m sure every Korean mother has a family recipe that they think is the best, and my mom’s no exception, and neither am I 🙂  In honor of the heat and summer (and a visit from my little sister), we decided to make some kalbi burgers, using the recipe and improvising a bit.  Here’s the recipe!

Woo Hoo it’s Friday!

The weekend is here! 🙂

Not much going on this weekend. Annie and I are going to attempt to make Kalbi Burgers, with kimchi relish! Hopefully, they turn out to be delicious and we can blog about them! 🙂

That’s it for now! Going to start the weekend. Hope you have a great one yourself! 🙂

Here is a a little afternoon treat!










Hugs & Kimchi,


006. Happy First Day of Summer!

Today is the first day of Summer 2012! Yay!

In honor of the first day of Summer, I have this song on repeat!

I know this song was released last year. But it’s so fun and it’s a perfect song to kick off the summer! 🙂
